THIS SATURDAY will be our LAST SATURDAY in this building!! It's definitely the end of an era but the new venue (which opens the 27th Jan) has some awesome features we think you'll be excited about, including Air Conditioning (due to popular demand) and a new sound rig that will make the old one sound like a bee fart bouncing off wet pollen. Exciting times ahead but first we've got to see off the old venue in Bahama Hut fashion, see you SATURDAY

Every time Stuff, NZ Herald or any other mainstream media site publishes clickbait, gossip style articles on the likes of Max Key, Richie McCaw's wedding or some new fashion trend, comment on their post 'Fake news'.
We need to hold New Zealand's mainstream media accountable for the growing trend towards clickbait trash rather than informative investigative journalism.

Did you watch last night's Pound Pups episode about Jewel? Here's an update on life since the show from her owner Rose!
Jewel is finally living her happily ever after story, but it wasn’t always smooth sailing. About 9 months after adopting her, after she’d wedged herself firmly into our hearts, she became extremely unwell. Her symptoms stumped numerous vets and specialists and she required countless tests, all coming back negative or inconclusive. She ended up admitted to the vet hospital and no one thought she would make it. Somehow she pulled through and we luckily kept on searching for answers. Not long after that we were finally given the suggestion that she may have an auto immune disease, which we now manage carefully with a very strict diet. She is definitely not 100% back to her old self but she is happy and healthy and even has a new brother, another rescue dog we adopted! They are the BEST of friends and it’s just so heartwarming seeing them so happy. We could never have gotten through all Jewel's health problems without the amazing support and donations from SO many people - to all of you thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Mark Vette's, Megan, Erin & the girls at The Strand Veterinarian, Lyn Thomson at Raw Essentials, Purina, and everyone who donated, offered their services, or sent messages of support, thank you for EVERYTHING you have done to help us, we couldn’t have got through it without you! Jewel now spends most of her days either lazing in the sun or racing around with her new pal Biscuit, she’s a much loved part of our family and I wouldn’t change her for the world xx
